TWCC and GIZ’s WE4A Program Organize Inspiring Industrial Visit to Boost Agribusiness Skills”
TWCC (Tanzania Women Chamber of Commerce) in collaboration with GIZ (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit) through the Women Entrepreneurship for Africa (WE4A) program, which supports women entrepreneurs in Tanzania in skills development and networking for business growth, successfully organized a visit for 34 youth and women from various regions of Tanzania on May 11th to 12th. The visit included tours of industrial facilities such as TAHA (Tanzania Horticultural Association), Tanzania Gemological Centre, and Eliya Food Overseas LTD, all located in the Arusha region.
During their visit to the TAHA institution, the youth and women were able to learn about the work of TAHA, its subsidiary companies (TAHAFRESH and GREENCERT), and the horticulture industry as a whole. Speaking to the visitors, the Chairman of TAHA’s Board of Directors, Engineer Zebadia Moshi, encouraged the youth to seize the opportunities available in the horticulture value chain, assuring them of TAHA’s utmost cooperation to help them achieve their goals of becoming successful entrepreneurs and businesspeople through agribusiness.
The youth had the opportunity to visit the Tengeru Farmers Training Center, managed by TAHA, which provides training services for farmers, seed production, and crop preservation. They witnessed various agricultural technologies, crop preservation methods, seed production techniques, and banana farming.
This visit was one of the strategies employed to provide hands-on training and enhance the skills of young men and women in Tanzania.
